- seamless change between discs 2 and 3
Crosby, Stills And Nash opened
During CSN's set, ALL of the members of the Grateful Dead were sitting at the side of the stage, watching CSN tear it up. They were having a good old time, it was nice to see them laughing and clapping for their old chums.
I haven't listened to this show since it happened. Had been planning on only catching the Buffalo (my home at the time) show this tour, but a couple of friends convinced me to truck down to Pittsburgh for this one (it wasn't a hard sell.......lol). Goddamn, I'm glad they did! Sure, stadium shows may not be everyone's cup of tea, but there's something about summertime dead, and they really delivered on this show. Thr first set rocks start to finish, and the second only gets better. Eyes>Estimated>Terrapin especially, but this whole show is great. I'm gonna listen to Buffalo next, to see which one is "better" (or at least sounds better to me), but it's hard to imagine the boys sounding much better than on this one.
awesome show for my birthday,love phil's "tom thumb blues" thanks for posting it on the archive!

WOW Thanks for the music!
What can I say. I started this tour in Philadelphia. My first time on the road with the Dead. Been to Philly shows in the past, but it was time to hit the road.
CSN opened the show and blew me ayay. Woodstock for the first time in 30 years! The rain was coming down hard and they played harder. It was like yesterday. Man I miss the old days :-(
Then the Dead came out and ROCKED! One of the best shows of the summer tour!

Personal Top 5
Hearing this recording brings me right back, as I was luck enough to attend this show. We rolled up from D.C. and, while I hated going to shows without tickets, were able to score some (plus some great d*ses) fairly easily, considering how popular that Dead was as this point. I got a sixth row floor seat for $25 ii you can believe it! Anyway, I was ridin' high on the music, among other things, and it was truly an incredible day. The thing that strikes me listening to it now is how well-played everything is and, of course, how on Jerry was at this show (even his voice). He was really workin' that MIDI. Who knows, maybe it was that short haircut he was sporting on the '90 summer tour! I saw just over 80 shows, and this one was in the top 5 for sure. For me, it ranks right up there with Merriweather, and 1st night Richmond, both in '85.
The first set tune selection is actually pretty ordinary, but, again, all the versions are great. And the Let it Grow closer soars and is just awesome. The second set, well, it was one of the best I ever saw! The top half of the second set clocks in at about an hour and all the tunes are smokin', esp. Eyes>Estimated. Those Eyes from 90 (and some 91, e.g., Greensboro) are so, so sweet! The five tunes (4 Bob's) post-drums was a lot for this era--and they're all great, esp. Wang Dang, Black Peter and Lovelight. Bob finished Lovelight strumming it out on one knee. Just an amazing show--the crowd was so juiced by the end. Wow--I remember that show so vividly it is hard to believe it was 19 years ago.
Finally, note the fact that there are no Brent tunes played--and he was typically doing at least a couple a show by this point. Sad that this was my second to last Brent show (RFK on 7/12 was my last), but his playing was great this night anyway. He was my favorite of the Dead's keyboard players, and was greatly missed both for his musicianship and voice. I mean to go from him to Vince was a real step down, but that's as different story for another day.
Couple of fun facts: It's true that CSN opened, but it's also true that they broke out Woodstock for the first time since the early 1970's. Also, the Dead had a prop that summer for the stadium shows which was this huge skeleton marionette that they displayed, during the second sets as I recall (and it danced--seriously I'm not making this up--I'm sure others can verify). Anyway, at the Three Rivers show one of the legs fell off (I think during Estimated but can't say for sure). But, in good Dead form, it kept on dancin...

I have been waiting for a good audience of this and here it is! The songs are incorrectly labled but it's all there! This was the first show where I noticed crowds rushing onto the floor in any great numbers. The staff just looked on, not really trying to stop it (I was one of those people too...). Definitely one of the happiest, vibewise, I ever saw. The music is pure glowing positivity to match the sunny day it was played on. Criminally underrated because of (I think) the setlist as there were a few interesting lists around this show, but this is the best of the lot!

Thanks to the taper and the uploader and everyone else that got this tape here. We have been in need of a AUD tape of this show for sometime.
I love me the AUD tapes.
